Our spring and summer vacation plans might have been deferred until a later date, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy wearing the cute clothes we may or may not have already bought! I’ve got to be honest, the past couple of weeks working from home have been such a huge change. Not only am I wearing less makeup and casual clothing, I’m also learning the importance of establishing a routine.
So while I haven’t even come close to mastering my morning and evening routine, I am noticing on the days that I do dress up a little and wear makeup, I am in such a better mood. I feel happy, I feel productive and I feel more ambitious. So if you’re having one of those days where you literally get out of bed five minutes before logging into work, try gradually getting ready throughout the day. Clock in at 8 a.m., eat breakfast at 8:30 a.m. get dressed at 9 a.m. and put on a face around 11 a.m. It sounds funny, but just try it. I do this on the days I wake up late, and let me tell you my whole attitude changes once I’m glammed.
This being said, let’s move on to some of the items I’ve picked up for spring/summer. I’ve been adding pieces to my wardrobe since late fall 2020. Some items are casual and some are more dressed. For the dressier clothes, I have a goal to wear them for date nights in with my husband. So let’s get into it shall we?
The best thing about ThredUP is the variety. I acquired three blouses, two pairs of shorts and two dresses. I’m just now noticing all of these picks are in the blue and white family and that was not intentional! Lol but when you like something, you like it!
One of my dear friends from college started her own boutique and she has the cutest clothes. She just stocked her Spring/Summer collection and I found so many items that I want. I was looking for a work blouse that could transition to evening, and a top I could wear for date night. I was successful in my mission and purchased a white blouse with ruffled sleeves and a cowl neckline tank.
At the time of this purchase, I needed more work pants and I invested in two pairs that I didn’t have to squeeze into or make me uncomfortable while sitting. These trousers from Banana Republic are perfectly grown up. They are a wonderful combination of business casual mixed with modern style.
Do you have any items on your spring/summer list? How about any cute lounge wear purchases?
